Shall Cameroon catch the democratic train
And kick corruption in the teeth, finally and at last?
Or shall it again miss the chance, and miss it woefully
As it did CAN 2010 and South Africa 2010?
That is the question of the day
We read it on the lips of citizens
And the answer is simply blowing in the wind.

We drunk country men and women, have acted the clown, even in rain.
Perhaps we shall wake up too late only to hear the blast
What we need most now is ability to speak truthfully
We may not yet be in a boat for ten
Nonetheless, with an engine axle wobbling sixty times a day
Why would they not rob us of our status of deacons?
Frankly, we must learn to sign and not rescind.

this is from ndoko looking at the issue we need to understand that we leave in a society where trying to take the lead seems you are rash to your elders meeting the standards of a democratic culture as propounded by Abraham lincoln will be a fairy tale because cameroonians think if i am, satisfied to hell with the other comrades in a society where you chop i chop is the order of the day lets hope the grace of God will save us all

Thanks for this thought provoking reaction.

However, what solution do you propose?
